Hi everyone,

I looked up the English word "timing" in the Ef-Fr dictionary and the only option it lists for the sense of "choosing the right moment" is... "timing" as a French word. It would be good to have something there that isn't such an anglicism.

I'd love to hear other suggestions. Mine are:

Choix du moment
Choisir le bon moment
"Timing is critical" -- "Le choix du moment est crucial.", "Il faut choisir le bon moment."

Moment opportun/propice
"The timing is right" -- "C'est le moment opportun."
